Got a New Years party coming up? Here's a great dip to try! Just be warned...it makes enough to feed a small village.
We had dinner at the Captains house the other night. A very informal, relaxed evening where our kids could meet and play, Heath and the Capt. could chat about what they want to do for this boat over the next couple years, and I could get to know his wife a little better. We had a really good time.
Anyway, after searching my Pinterest Appetizer Folder for something to make, I decided on this. It mixes up super quick, but I really must recommend cutting this recipe in half if you're making it for less than 25 people.
I only took half to the Caps house, and the picture above is half of the half I had left. I took Frito Scoops over with it, but when I took the pictures the next day here at home, I only had tortilla chips. I much preferred the Fritos.
In the end, I would absolutely make this again, I would just cut it down. It's super easy, you can either make it the night before and stick it in the fridge, or make it the day you need it and chill it for a couple hours. Plus, it's really, really tasty :)
